balancing act for the obama administration because, of course, the united states must support the continuation of democracy especially in egypt which is the heart of the arab world. and so i think you'll see some criticism by the state department and white house where president morsi has announced but on the other hand you saw last week how important morsi was in putting together the cease-fire between israel and hamas. he will be important on issues like iran, on countering terrorism. he now is one of the dominant figures in the middle east. so the administration doesn't want to alienate him but i do think they have to speak truth to power. and there will be criticism both from the united states and many other countries about this worrisome sign of possible return to authoritarianism in egypt. >> glor: nicholas burns, thank you. palestinian authority president abbas spoke to his supporters on the eve of his departure to the united nation where he will argue that plan should be upgraded to an observer state. abbas's predecessor yasser arafat died eight years ago. some still su

scandal that would take down, you know, an official within the obama administration and they completely failed. and not only did they fail, it backfired. they lost credibility on their reporting as you just highlighted. susan rice is more popular and more well known than she was at the beginning and mccain looks humiliated by trying to create this committee out of full cloth. that went know where so fox has to kind of think now what is our role in the coming years if we can't -- if we can't use all of our energy and affect a change here. >> fox is a propaganda machine. >> joe, i want to be fair, there was one voice over there that tried to make a little sense and that was late in the campaign, was geraldo rivera. listen to what geraldo said. >> i think we have to stop politicizing. we're getting away from the real issue, which is, why wasn't there security before this happened? because that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations -- do weapon want to know what happened? do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north afric

: right now pressure mounting on the obama administration over its response to the deadly attack on our consulate in benghazi. as catherine herridge reported just minutes ago. several top gop lawmakers are backing off their criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice. instead focusing on the white house. two senators even expressing concerns about a possible white house cover-up. let's talk about it with tom ricks, he is author of, the generals. he has spent decades covering your military. he joins us now. senator john mccain said in the past he would block any attempt to nominate susan rice to become, u.n., i'm sorry, secretary of state. she is currently the u.n. ambassador. he seems to be backing away from that. what do you make of that? >> i think benghazi was generally behind by this network especially. now that the campaign is over i think he is walking backing off a little bit. they will not stop susan rice from being secretary of state. jon: when you have four people dead in 30 years, how do you call that hype. >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? jon: i don't.
to be his special envoy and the united states spent two years and the obama administration, some political capital, trying to broker a negotiation between mahmoud abbas and prime minister netanyahu and ultimately was not successful. i do agree over the past couple of years, there's been a pause in the peace process, you know, to try to see if conditions, you know, could be created to bring us back to a negotiating table. but i would also say that, you know, it's -- the environment today is much different than it was even four years ago. you have had the arab spring and everyone that's involved in this is doing careful recalculations of their strategic interests and that's even going on i think in the heart of the negotiations that are ongoing for a cease-fire. >> just to follow up, are you implying too many visits just means it's a bad situation there? >> well, you'll recall, the environment between 2003 and 2008, you know, the united states was involved in an act of war in the middle east. so again, the agenda to some extent drives, you know, where a secretary of state spends the bulk of

for the obama administration and what in the long term? ite many important to consider -- it's important to understand this means iran is still on the march. why did hamas attack israel now? one objective was to draw israel into a broader war and get egypt to rescind its treaty with israel. and also giving it arms to attack israel. iran wants to put israel back on its heels and it wants to distract from its own nuclear weapons program and the proxy war it's fighting in syria. it changed the topic. we still have a dangerous regime and dangerous ideology of islamicism, the chief proponents which is the iranian regime. nothing in this cease-fire addresses that unfortunately. heather: what about in terms of what this means in terms of our relationship with egypt moving forward? >> a lot of people see this as a positive development which is unfortunate. egypt still has an islamist government that won very narrowly 52-48. it's very anti-israel and anti-american. it talks about restoring the caliphate in jerusalem. they are ready to re -- they can learn from pakistan that basically you can take
that the obama administration has refused to give congress, citing executive privilege. >>> and 30 rock ready for its close-up. the annual rockefeller center christmas tree lighting takes place tonight here in new york city. for the past two weeks they've been decorating the tree with more than 30,000 multicolored l.e.d. lights. tonight, tens of thousands of people will crowd the sidewalks in midtown for a glimpse of the worldwide symbol of the holiday season. >> in honor of my first christmas here i am going tonight. >> that's right. good for you. >> i'm very excited. >> tonight's powerball jackpot is half a billion dollars. expected to climb even higher before the big drawing tonight. >> it is the second largest jackpot in lottery history and a record for the 42-state game. the cash payout for a single winning ticket right now is $324 million. >> and right now the state of indiana is giving away 3500 free powerball lottery tickets. it's first come, first serve. right now we have jessica hayes of our affiliate wish in zionsville with a dancing powerball mascot behind her. how is it looking o
. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checkered record on national security. yes, as doug points out, he escalated the drone attacks but, of course, he ignored advance warnings of a terrorist attack in benghazi, ignored the pleas for help, how do you reconcile or explain that unless this is just a conflicted and unsure president? >>guest: well, it is fairly schizophrenic. if you just look at the president's approach on terrorists, right from the beginning of the administration, it is almost like he wanted to bend over backwards to respect the rights of terrorists who were
's address at the university in burma. they rejected me. this isn't the first member of president obama's administration to doze off. remember joe biden nodded off during the president's budget speech last year. he was thinking what he would do if he was president. former chief economic advisor larry summers could not keep his eyes open during the meeting. 5 hour energy all around, kids. >> alisyn: you can not fault hillary clinton with that travel schedule. talk about a wild encounter, we take to you texas for this one. two men were walking to a car when a deer attacked them. he jumped into the bed of the pick up and called police. >> he put his front paws on my feet, got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing them. he broke a police officer's rib, kicked a police officer in the leg. >> alisyn: the animal also caused some damage to the truck. it took more than five men to get the deer under control. >> steve: you don't hear much about how deer are apparently hooked on nicotine down there. >> alisyn: right. >> brian: remember the deer that came alive in that movie with -- in tommy bo
middle class families, the obama administration had asked middle class families to tell their stories about how it would impact them if congress followed the president's plan and extended those bush era tax cuts. today 85 of those people who responded to that request will be here at the white house meeting with the president. today the white house is also launching hash tag my 2 k on twitter for people to send in more experiences. it stands for my 2,000, a reference to $2,200 that the president says middle class families will save if the bush era tax cuts are extended. it's part of a push to get americans to press their elected leaders to make a deal to extend the tax cuts for everyone except those families making over $250,000. republicans have said they're prepared to talk about raising taxes on wealthier americans if democrats will agree to cut entitlement spending. which the white house seemed to agree with. >> it is the president's position that when we're talking about a broad balanced approach to dealing with our fiscal challenges, that that includes dealing with entitlements.
to defend the obama administration. >>wouldn't do it. this is opposite day. >> i actually think the president's, dare i say, i've been critical of hs his handling of the middle east and specifically the u.s. relationship with israel, i think he's handled this well. i completely reject this is commitly motivated or about american jewish vote or the election. there's one time he doesn't have to play to the american jewish community it's right now, and i think he recognizes that israel was unprovoked, that they are dealing with a government in gaza that the u.s. and the europeans all label a terrorist organization, 12 to 15,000 rockets sitting in gaza built up over years, israel's in the last few weeks been subjected to over a thousand of them, i think his assessments is, it's a really complicated issue. of course he's horrified by the deaths on both sides, but the idea that israel can't respond the way it's responding, is completely unreasonable. and i think he is handling it well and that he's focused on egypt. egypt is -- morsi is the lynchpen here. if there's any stabilization
, of course, morsi's actions would concentrate enormous power in his hands. that puts the administration in a difficult position because president obama called morsi three times this week during the gaza cease-fire negotiations and secretary of state hillary clinton flew to meet with him. afterwards, administrations officials praised him as a peacekeeper, now the white house has to figure out how to respond with a so called peacekeeper who's stirring up so much protesting. >> mason: chip reid. thanks, chip. the cease-fire in gaza morsi brokerd is holding despite a deadly shooting at the border. israeli troops fired warning shots at 300 palestinians to force them to move away from the fence that separates israel from gaza. israel considers that area off limits. a palestinian man was later shot and killed. his relatives say he was trying to plant a hamas flag when he was shot. today, of course, is black friday, the frenzied start of the holiday shopping season. bargain hunters were out in force across the country looking for deals. others were out for the fun of it. 147 million people are
organizations re-operate from gaza the future is war. >> reporter: president obama stood by israel during the fighting and still does. his administration is now planning to ask congress to increase funding for israel's missile defense system. the iron dome system intercepted more than 80% of the missiles hamas launched during the conflict. and israel has a man in custody suspected of planting the bomb on a tel aviv bus that wounded 15 people. a police spokesman says the israeli arab is a member of hamas. more arrests are expected. some israelis are expressing disappointment that israel's response wasn't harsher. hamas has declared november 22nd a permanent national holiday. >> susan mcginnis in washington. have a good weekend. thank you. egypt's president mohamed morsi has given himself new sweeping powers. he declared the court can't challenge any of his decisions. he ordered the retrial of former president hosni mubarak and top aides. he said his power grab is to protect the revolution that toppled mubarak. critics say he's appointed himself egypt's new pharaoh. coming up, highway horro
obama's cabinet for the small business administration. ken, let me start with you. black friday, black thanksgiving night, cyber monday, why do we need a small business saturday on top of it? >> i think the most important thing is we want to celebrate small businesses and celebrate the communities where small businesses are, and what we've seen over the last two years, this is the third year of small business saturday. we've really built a tremendous movement, and small businesses have seen increased in sales, and that's what it's about. what small businesses want are more customers. >> true though, ken, that small businesses kind of needed this holiday because they were getting pinched and squeezed out by things like cyber monday and black friday? >> i think the most important thing is we wanted to celebrate small businesses. this is not big box retailers against small businesses or cyber monday, there's room for all three. what we really felt is we wanted to really put attention to small businesses, the importance that small businesses have to our economy, creating half of the priva
said. >> president obama came out and defended her. if you want to talk talk to me. she went out on behalf of the administration. don't you put your potential secretary of state or figurehead to and the intelligent questions and come out and provide the information or is she out there like a puppet? >> one would think that machine involved in the intelligence briefing would and the right questions. the president only shows up for half of the intelligence prevings and when he was trying to defend or pick a fight with the republicans over susan rice, he made a statement that she knew nothing about beng f. she doesn't know about benghazi, why trot her out on the sunday shows. this is the wrong answer for secretary of state. hillary clinton's done an exceptional job and the president needs to show he will make a bipartisan play and i think john mccane would be the right person right now. >> that ain't happening but that is it an interesting choice. >> pete had too much turkey yesterday. and iconic roller could i have ther is under water and it may be a tourist attraction. constructio
